Rolls-Royce’s share price is climbing. Should I buy the stock now?

first_img The Rolls-Royce (LSE: RR) share price has jumped higher over the past few weeks. From around 40p per share at the beginning of October, the stock is now changing hands at about 95p, a gain of approximately 140% in just a few weeks. Following this performance, I’ve decided to take a closer look at the stock as I consider adding it to my portfolio. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Rolls-Royce share price performance Before I buy shares in any enterprise, I always try to understand why the stock has performed in the way it has. In other words, I want to know what’s going on with the business. When it comes to Rolls-Royce, it seems to me there are two reasons why the stock has outperformed the market over the past few weeks.First off, the company has launched a massive recapitalisation plan, which has strengthened its balance sheet and removed any risk of near-term bankruptcy. I think this development dramatically improved investor sentiment towards Rolls-Royce’s share price.Second, the news of a potential coronavirus vaccine suggests the end of the pandemic is in sight. For a company that relies on the airline industry for the bulk of its revenues, this is excellent news. However, we’re not out of the woods just yet. The most optimistic forecasts suggest there will be no global vaccination programme until the first half of 2021. That implies Rolls-Royce faces several more months and uncertainty. Even if a vaccine is rolled out over the next six months, it could potentially be years before air travel demand returns to 2019 levels. Mixed outlookConsidering all of the above, I think the outlook for the Rolls-Royce share price is highly uncertain. The worst seems to be behind the business, although there’s no clear path for the firm to return to growth.And that’s what worries me. It could be years before the firm’s bottom line returns to the black, which makes it almost impossible to value the business at current levels.Still, I reckon in the long run the company will be able to pull itself out of its current predicament. After all, Rolls-Royce is one of the world’s largest producers of engines for commercial airlines. Its experience and know-how in this industry is almost unrivalled, and that’s unlikely to change any time soon. I think this competitive advantage will almost certainly help the business in its recovery over the next five years or so. Nevertheless, despite that potential, I think it could be many years before the company is in a position where it will be able to return cash to investors. That tells me the potential for returns from this stock in the medium term is low.As such, I’m not a buyer of the share price after its recent performance. I think there are other opportunities out there that could offer more profit potential with less risk.  See all posts by Rupert Hargreaves I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future.

Can cities get smarter about extreme weather?

first_img Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Remember the movie “Moneyball”? The Oakland A’s are struggling, financially and on the baseball field. Then they introduce an innovative system for figuring out which players will improve team performance. Moving away from observations by scouts, the A’s begin to use advanced statistics to value players. With their new insights, the A’s acquire high-impact players for relatively little money. Within a season, they’re at the top of the game and so successful that within a few years the rest of the league has reorganized how they value players, too.“Moneyball” highlights the power of innovative knowledge systems: creative new sets of tools and practices for collecting, analyzing and applying data to solving problems. All organizations depend on knowledge systems, but it’s not uncommon, over time, for the knowledge they generate to become stale and poorly adapted to changing contexts.As researchers on resilience and sustainability of cities, we’ve found that unfortunately that has become the case for a number of cities. This is already causing problems: Outdated knowledge systems have exacerbated recent disasters and contributed to growing financial losses from extreme weather, which have exceeded US$110 billion in the U.S. this year alone.Discussions around improving resilience and adaptation to extreme events often focus on upgrading infrastructure or building new infrastructure, such as bigger levees or flood walls. But cities also need new ways of knowing, evaluating and anticipating risk by updating their information systems.500-year floodConsider the use of 100-year or 500-year flood levels to guide urban planning and development. Using this framework, cities hope to prevent small floods while limiting the occurrence of catastrophic flooding.Yet, the data behind this strategy are rapidly becoming obsolete. Weather statistics are now changing in many places. As a result, cities are experiencing repeat 500-year floods, sometimes multiple times, in a few decades or less. Yet cities continue to rely almost exclusively on historical data for projecting future risks.The city of Houston, Texas, for example, has experienced a 167 percent increase in the intensity of heavy downpours between 2005-2014 as compared to 1950-1959. The 2017 Hurricane Harvey flood in Houston represented the third 500-year flood to occur in the past three years. Prior to Harvey, Harris County flood control managers downplayed the need to change their knowledge systems, arguing that the two prior flooding events were isolated events.New possible futuresCities need to better anticipate what would happen in the case of these types of unprecedented extreme weather events. The past few years have seen a growing number of record-breaking storms, droughts and other weather events.The National Weather Service labeled Hurricane Harvey “unprecedented,” both for the rapidity of its intensification and the record levels of rainfall it dumped on Houston. Hurricane María hit San Juan as the third-strongest storm to make landfall in the U.S., based on air pressure measurements. Its rapid intensification surprised forecasters and presents yet another challenge to climate and weather models.Hit hard by Hurricane Maria, Puerto Rico needs to rebuild infrastructure, such as this dam and its power grid. But it also needs to update the assumptions around extreme weather that go into planning and design. AP Photo/Ramon EspinosaRecord-breaking events like these cannot be made sense of using statistics grounded on the past frequency of occurrence. Not recognizing the growing risks from extreme weather is dangerous and costly if cities continue to create more buildings that are more expensive in increasingly vulnerable locations.What’s needed are new and more creative ways to explore possible futures and their potential implications. One approach is to use climate or other predictive models. Such models are never perfect but can add important elements to discussions that can’t be gotten from historical data.For instance, cities can look at projected sea level rise or storm surges and decide whether it makes economic sense to rebuild homes after damaging storms, or whether it’s better to compensate homeowners to move outside the flood zone.Designing for tomorrow’s stormsCities also need to upgrade their knowledge systems to anticipate risks in what are often called “design storms.” These are the anticipated future storms that people who design and build individual structures – from buildings to flood walls – are required to use in their designs as a minimum risk standard.Cities need to seriously rethink their design storm standards if they are to fully understand and be comfortable with the future risks from extreme weather events to which their businesses and residents are being exposed.In New Orleans, for example, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers created a Standard Project Hurricane in 1957 that defined the wind speeds and storm surges that the levees built around the city would have to withstand. As with most design storms, the Standard Project Hurricane was based on retrospective data of past hurricane frequency and intensity in the century prior to 1957. In subsequent decades, however, hurricane frequency and intensity changed significantly in the Gulf of Mexico, the Standard Project Hurricane was not updated and protection infrastructures were not upgraded, contributing to their failure in the face of Hurricane Katrina.Cities and federal governmentOne final area for knowledge systems innovation in cities is risk inequalities.It seems increasingly clear that cities like Houston, New York and New Orleans were poorly informed about how flooding risks would be distributed across communities within their cities, particularly communities of color and low-income communities.This inattention to disproportionate risk raises several questions: Were the communities of these flood-prone cities aware of these risks and vulnerabilities? How much did city officials and developers know? How did their efforts exacerbate existing disparities? Did people making decisions about where to live understand the risks they faced?The significance of knowledge systems for urban resilience extends beyond cities to national agencies and organizations. Sadly, the Trump administration decided in August to issue an executive order exempting federal agencies and public infrastructure projects from planning for sea level rise. Abolishing flood standards is a step backwards for fostering knowledge systems that enhance urban resilience.Even if federal agencies choose to ignore sea level rise, we believe cities should pressure them to take it into account. In the end, it is the city and its people who are being put at risk, not the federal government. It is promising, for example, to see local and regional efforts like the Southeast Florida Regional Climate Compact coming to together to upgrade their resilience knowledge systems and advocate for desirable federal policies for climate adaptation.What cities know and how they think are essential to whether cities can make better decisions. For over a century, cities have broadly approached knowledge about weather risks by collecting and averaging past weather data. Nature is now sending cities a simple message: That strategy won’t work anymore.This article was produced by the Knowledge Systems Innovation Group at Arizona State University’s Urban Resilience to Extreme Events Sustainability Research Network (UREx SRN) (Eric Kennedy, Margaret Hinrichs, Changdeok Gim, Kaethe Selkirk, Pani Pajouhesh, Robbert Hobbins, Mathieu Feagan).

Advertiser spots impact of UK Fundraising listing on Google rankings

The dramatic effect on the Mug Man’s rankings is probably due to the high Google page ranking that UK Fundraising enjoys. This is Google’s complicated and largely secret method of analysing how relevant a website is to one or more keywords. UK Fundraising has a page rank of 5 out of 10. Sadly, we have dropped a rank over the past few months, but it seems so have quite a few sites in this sector that we monitor.Google’s calculations include an assumption that a website linked to from a site with a high page ranking is also likely to be a good quality site in terms of the site’s keyword or keywords. So, in effect, a link or links from UK Fundraising will piggyback on the success of UK Fundraising’s page ranking, and probably it’s rankings in search results for the word “fundraising” or “fundraiser”.While we don’t advertise this as a benefit of our site because it is beyond our control, we’re sure that quite a few of the advertisers on our site are well aware of the benefit this listing has on their search rankings. A company which has just taken out an annual listing in the UK Fundraising supplier directory has spotted that this has boosted his ranking for important keyword searches on Google.Nick Guyton of school fundraising products supplier The Mug Man is keen to appear high in Google’s results pages for searches on the phrase “school fundraiser”. Before he took out the supplier directory listing on UK Fundraising his website was on page nine of the results. Within a week of his listing going live, his website was on page two of the results.UK Fundraising has spotted this with other advertisers: in some cases UK Fundraising’s directory listing will rank higher than the supplier’s own website in Google searches.

This is counter productive and will run down available water in storageBurst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre.Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property.Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lostCaravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage.Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies News Facebook Twitter Council warns of major water restrictions as thaw sets in Further drop in people receiving PUP in Donegal 365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic STRANORLAR ELECTORAL AREAWater supplies will be restricted in the following areas from 8:00pm until 8:00amConvoyCastlefinRaphoeLiffordBallinacorTievebrackGleneely Ballybofey and Stranorlar – supply will also be turned off to the Twin Towns from midnight until 8.00am each night INISHOWEN ELECTORAL AREAWater supplies will be restricted in the following areas from 10:00pm until 8:00amQuigley’s Point to north of Muff villageGreencastleBuncrana TownCarndonaghMalin Head 75 positive cases of Covid confirmed in North last_img read more

According to the plaintiff, the defendant has been causing damage to her by persistently and continuously making defamatory and libelous statements on social media as well as electronic media. Advocate Saveena Bedi of Lawhive appeared on behalf of the plaintiff and contended that malicious publications made by the defendant are untrue, false and defamatory, allegedly portraying the plaintiffs as ‘druggist’. The plaintiff is a well-known film actress of Bollywood, Bedi argued.She then drew the Court’s attention to the defendant’s tweet dated October 23, 2020 which reads as under; “Meri shaadi Mahesh Bhatt ke bhanje Sumit Sabherwal ke sath huyi thi, aur maine unke khilaaf divorce case file kiya hae kyunki mujhe pata Chalgaya tha woh drugs supply karte hain actors ko jaise Amyra Dastur, Sapna Pabbi”. It is, thus, contended that such libelous and defamatory statements on the social media have caused harm and damage to the reputation of the plaintiff in the eyes of the public and in the society at large, Advocate Bedi submitted.On the other hand, Advocate Prashant Pandey instructed by Weleagaue, appeared for the defendant and submitted that the defendant was also an actress but is now a makeup Director. She maintains that she has not at all defamed or caused any damage to the reputation of the plaintiff but she has only placed the truth and the facts as noticed on the social and electronic media, Advocate Pandey said.Thus, learned Counsel for the defendant, at this stage, orally admits accountability of the defendant qua the statements made on the social and electronic media, Court noted.When Court asked Advocate Pandey as to whether the defendant would stop making such statements, he took instructions and submitted that she (defendant) is ready for undergoing a Narco analysis test in support of the statements made by her on the social and electronic media. The defendant has not and does not intend to make any defamatory statement qua the plaintiff, Adv Pandey argued.Finally, Court concluded-“Having considered the respective submissions at bar, it would be just and proper to grant ad-interim relief to the plaintiff in terms of prayer clause (c). The defendant shall file affidavit-in-reply, if any, within four weeks from today. Affidavit in rejoinder to be filed within two weeks thereafter.”The next date of hearing is December 22, 2020.Previously, another bench of the High Court had restrained the defendant from making any defamatory statements against Mahesh Bhatt while hearing a civil defamation suit filed by Mahesh Bhatt and his brother Mukesh Bhatt against Luviena Lodh for making defamatory statements against them and sought Rs.1 crore in damages.

Lawn chairs and the pickup trucks claim the best spots on Lockheed Martin road all the way to downtown China Grove. In town, benches offer the best seats in the house but there aren’t enough of them to accommodate the crowd that stations itself near the chow line. So the overflow spills over to the yards that are all manicured for the occasion and along the “street.” “We already got a great parade lineup, and we invite everyone to decorate a ride or grab one and come and get in line Saturday morning,” LaFountaine said. “You don’t have to tell us you’re coming. Just come on.”And, at China Grove, the pace is still slow enough that throwing candy is not only allowed, it’s encouraged.”Although China Grove is not a big metropolis with fancy restaurants, on the Fourth of July, there’s no better eating anywhere.The Meeksville Volunteer Fire Department will have its famous barbecue — chicken or pork — plates with the barbecue cooked right before your eyes. Area churches will be the proprietors of outdoor ice cream parlors and slushes, shaved ice and cold, fresh “squoze” lemonade will save the day. And those who think that nothing is free anymore have never been to China Grove on the Fourth of July.Following the parade, the Jimmy Dean family will slice up a ton of ice-cold watermelons and “thank you” is all they pay they need or want.Before and after the parade, the crowd will be entertained by music, “Live from the heart of downtown China Grove.“The Texas Roadhouse Two-Step Dancers will be here for the ‘High Noon Street Dance’ and, hopefully, the weather will give us a little break,” LaFountaine said.“But it is the Fourth of July and, in Southeast Alabama, we expect it to be hot so we can handle it.” China Grove gears up for ‘Fourth’ parade Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies Are… Latest Stories By Jaine Treadwell Print Article By The Penny Hoarderlast_img read more

More wins for union backed tribunal cases

first_img Previous Article Next Article Employees have more chance of winning an employment tribunal case if backedby a trade union, according to recent figures from the TUC. Focus on EmploymentTribunals, the annual trends survey from the TUC reveals that 95 per cent ofunion cases are settled or won at tribunal, compared with nearly a third (29per cent) of the total cases lost. Over two-thirds of unions say that simplybringing a claim makes employers more likely to settle. Unions are also winning more in compensation for their members than everbefore. Between November 1999 and October 2000, awards almost doubled from theprevious year. Commenting on the figures, TUC general secretary John Monkssaid, “Unions continue to win for their members and are winning morecompensation than ever before. They are good negotiators – most say simplybringing a claim drives employers to settle.” But the CBI accuses the TUC of fuelling a compensation culture by revellingin the figures. Susan Anderson, director of human resources policy at the CBIsaid, “We are disappointed the TUC is placing so much emphasis onlitigation rather than resolving disputes in the workplace. It is not helpfulto say they can get a result simply by bringing a claim.” More wins for union backed tribunal casesOn 1 Apr 2001 in Personnel Today Comments are closed.
